They say a clean room makes for a peaceful mind. The same goes for your computer! Backing up your files to the Cloud makes room for new data, and also eases your mind in that if your computer or device crashes, you can easily restore your files. In the spirit of Spring cleaning, here are a few tips for getting your files in order with IDrive.

Out with the old photos, in with the new

A picture’s worth a thousand words–and a few gigabytes, too. As pictures and videos accumulate into albums, your hard drive can become congested with TBs of images on it. Storing these files in the Cloud makes room on your computers and devices for all the incoming photos you’ll be taking during Spring and Summer vacation. This also ensures your data is safe in the Cloud in the event that your device is destroyed. IDrive’s True Archive nature means that even if you decide to clear photos off your hard drive, they’ll stay in the Cloud until you decide you no longer need them.

Sure you backed up everything?

You want to dig deep into your files to make sure you’ve backed up every single one that matters. Even if you’re regularly backing up your data every month or so, your precious files can slip through the cracks. With IDrive, you can run a full backup to catch every missed file. You can also schedule automated backups by day and time to back up any new files automatically. That way no files will go unprotected if you forget to manually back them up.

Keep those tax documents organized!

In the midst of tax season, it’s important to keep your digital bills, statements and forms secure in the Cloud where they can be accessed from any device, and where they’re safe from data disasters such as  viruses or hard drive failures. Any files backed up using IDrive are protected with military-grade 256-bit encryption. We also offer private key encryption, meaning you choose the key that unlocks your files. Your tax documents will be locked away in your own private safe in the Cloud, and no one else on the planet will know the passcode. That means all your private information stays private.

IDrive makes it easy to backup all your data from all your devices, including iOS, Android, PC, and Mac platforms. Just download our award-winning application, and get secure and accessible this Spring.
